sting live from moscow your with r.t. . in syria radical islamists have reportedly captured a key military base in the country's north the claim that violence has stoked fears the country's chemical weapons stockpiles could potentially fall into militant hands well it is middle east correspondent has the latest now. now this comes as the damascus regime increasingly accuses both the e.u. and the united states of conducting a smear campaign against it in terms of falsely accusing damascus of using chemical weapons the syrian foreign ministry has written a number of letters to the united nations in which it says that it is afraid that countries backing both terrorists and terrorism might themselves provide those countries with chemical weapons and then shift the blame and point fingers towards syria there is of course growing concern that the chemical weapons stockpiles
within syria could land up in the hands of extreme militants in here we've been hearing reports of both al qaida as well as has been in the south operating in lending their support to the insurgency and so there's concern that these weapons could land up specifically in their hands the united states for its side says it has intelligence that the syrian army may be preparing to use chemical weaponry and again the u.s. has pushed the line that this would be a red line if indeed it was proven and that this would bring in the shift reaction and the immediate involvement of the united states we are hearing from a u.s. official as well as senior administration officials that the u.s. and the european union are training rebels both within jordan and turkey in terms of trying to secure these stockpiles of chemical weapons within syria now it is important to make note that none of these reports in terms of chemical weapons can
be verified what we do know is that so your has one of the world's largest chemical weapon arsenals syria has never joined the chemical weapons convention and as such it has never given any kind of information in terms of the extended to and the declaration of its chemical weapons and this is why at this stage it is unknown exactly what is the extent of the chemical weapons and indeed in his hands there are they said he is an information war out there and we are witnessing an increasing number of videos be. posted on you tube you have a situation where both sides the damascus regime as well as the rebels are accusing the other of blood chilling atrocities as well as war crimes and let me just warn our viewers that the videos you're about to see are disturbing there is a video that is circulating on you tube that shows that assad troops are using chemical weapons and when you look at this video you see disturbing pictures of both adults but also children with disfigured face faces as well as limbs and incredible lose to the bodies there is of course also videos of rebels reportedly
using chemical weapons on bunny's as almost a great against the assad regime that this is just what they planning on doing the rebels have also been posting videos of innocent victims of aerial bombings as well as shaming while at the same time quote assad activists have been posting on you tube videos of rebels making a child behaves in a number of prisoners now according to the information this reporter who did happen in homes what we do say you know the video is a number of the hated all victims we see the child actually beheading this person but again no way of indicating over refined exactly the truth of this although some sources say that they were people with saudi accidents being heard inside this video all of this is extremely disturbing footage again no way of verifying its authenticity but it certainly does show that tensions on the ground are increasing and increasing and alarming rate. meanwhile u.s.
sources say washington is training rebels to secure a hundred chemical weapons in case the syrian regime collapses some observers are now convinced of the foreign intervention is in the making. this period right now and the talk of weapons of mass destruction chemical weapons in syria is very reminiscent of the run up to the anglo-american attack on iraq in two thousand and three one of those videos purported to show syrian insurgents funded by the west preparing chemical weapons which were used on rabbits but could be used on syrian civilians and then blamed on the syrian government the assad government is not suicidal it has been playing its cards very carefully there is no basis in fact for the use of chemical weapons by the syrian government that would be counterproductive the weapons of mass destruction argument used so effectively in
two thousand and three and later found out to be a complete hoax they've just they've tried it out of the dustbin and there plan to rerun it again but while only people are trying to survive in austerity wrecked britain it seems some corporate giants will stop at nothing to get that will kill for paying their share of the tax avoidance costs the debt stricken country tens of billions of pounds a year figure that's no good being thrown away today as sarah ferguson reports. well people from all over the border tend not to this conference with companies like starbucks and apple google at the moment it's really part of a much larger picture welcome to the world of tax avoidance illegal but morally suspect way the companies and the wealthy have been dodging paying their fair share most people are due to discuss these companies do not the very taxation which is a criminal offense but are void taxation basically use existing facilities and
legal loopholes in the different regulation and taxation between different countries to their advantage companies like. the head office is based in luxemburg which they claim is the center of the economic operations which is handy as luxembourg so well known in tax haven where companies can enjoy a lower tax rate but hang on a minute here one of amundsen's much of this thirty seven cents is based in the u.k. in fact the reality is that many of our customers their employees and many will distribution centers like this what are in fact based here in the united kingdom so it's not hard to see that the relatively small luxembourg office is nothing in fact is they say at the heart of their operations and yet the u.k. tax system doesn't seem to recognise as ordinary british taxpayers who are losing
out that's entirely on the face of it to run because you can register your transaction in different country and the place of destruction is the place of taxation whereas you can have your activities actually taking place here is legal. surely then in the midst of a flat lining economy the government would be eager to plug the holes billions of much needed tax plans leak out. but in the chancellor's autumn statement last week and it was the penniless on welfare he went in the government's firing line why has this government decided to clamp down on benefits for clamping down on multi-million pound tax avoiders. well i think that the government is clamping down on that there's been
a lot of money allocated by him but there are now that people know that. or doing that now that people know that they've been avoiding paying that amount of tax i mean it's no good doing it after not paying there's a difference between people. who voiding tax to legitimate reasons and those who are illegally doing it there is a to do when you're a citizen i don't know i still avoiding paying where interested me again. let me actually answer the question once before you actually interoperability tax avoid is ok to legally tell you what starbucks and amazon and google have been doing is ok's that you're saying i said there's a difference between tax avoiders and tax evasion tax evasion is illegal tax avoidance people are using the law to their benefit now if the law is wrong we need to change the law but for now the law continues to allow an exodus of profits made
in britain meaning companies like amazon can keep getting away with paying less than the tax payers they're profiting from sarah firth r.t. london. well european union's three presidents have received this year's nobel peace prize on behalf of member states the e.u. has been given the award in recognition of fostering peace but even before the prize was hand-out the decision sparked did nation throughout europe several previous winners wrote an open letter to the nobel foundation demanding that it will be stripped of the award ahead of sunday's ceremony hundreds marched through the norwegian tapetum in protest of the institute of democracy in cooperation police peace is one of the last things you should know what is. there has not been peace in europe for the last sixty years as the president of the european council said everybody knows that there was
a war against yugoslavia in one thousand nine hundred ninety in which european states e.u. member states participated very fully they attacked you. so one cannot say that there has been peace in europe since them in any case if we look further afield with syria the european union's policy the actual policy of the european union as an organization nevermind its member states has been in my view to fan the flames of the conflict in syria and not to act as a peace broker so there is literally no way in which we can say that the european union has fostered peace. also ahead a few the security titans in egypt has more protests new supporters and opponents of president mohamed mursi. front each of the gang affiliation is itself a school and referendum draw a constitution. he says well he won't have no bread. i said way made him a lightning. thank you he will never hand then. from having

arrested him at his residence they charged him with fifty six counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument grand larceny possession of stolen property and weapons possession for having a deadly terrorist weapon and unloaded twenty two caliber pistol although being in jail won't be pleasant perhaps arzt as some actually in the end got what he wanted he proved to the world that big brother surveilled him and arrested him all for throwing up a few posters looks like he proved his point but that's just my opinion. admission of free critique ation free in-store judges free. range months of free risk free studio time free. download free broadcast quality video for your media projects a free media dog r.t.
